A NORMAL Parent Is Not A “Friend”
One time I told my Nana; “You’re my friend.” My Nana said; “I will never be your ‘friend’. I am your Grandmother.” Too many times, and it seems more and more Americans want to be ‘friends’ with their children. We need more parents that will discipline their kids. If a child is not disciplined, that child will grow up to be a problem. So, do NOT feel guilty when you must reprimand your children.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”
